Recently, a nurse filed a griev­ance on behalf of Oncology Infusion nurses. The issue arose because nurses who missed their rest breaks were not paid at the time and a half rate.

In a collab­o­ra­tive effort, the issue was resolved. This will result in the 16 affected nurses receiving back pay for the missed rest breaks.

It is impor­tant that you review your paychecks to make sure that you are being paid correctly. If you ever have a question, feel free to call WSNA or speak with one of your Local Unit Officers.
